This year we are proud to again offer both a sprint and International triathlon distance to our athletes.

To those of you who have done the event before, welcome back! To those new to the event, you may be interested to know that the park is ranked one of the top-ten beaches in the United States; nine hundred unspoiled acres surround you. First timers, we anticipate that you will have a great first triathlon at Ft. De Soto. To all, we ask that you enjoy the surroundings and please leave the park cleaner than you found it. The Run portion of this event goes over the top of Ft De Soto itself so the sprint/international run courses are 3.4 miles and 6.8 miles.

The Sprint Distance is a 1/2 Mile Swim, a 10 Mile Bike, and a 3.4 mile Run on a marked course
